Two of the first jokes fired off Seth MacFarlane’s lips at the Oscars fell flat Sunday night. The first off-color jibe was made at Rihanna and Chris Brown’s expense, while the second barb targeted Mel Gibson.
The Gibson joke, when McFarlane said the reason there were so many n-bombs in the script for Django Unchained is because it was based on Mel Gibson’s voice mails didn’t earn many fans early on. In fact, it garnered more boos than anything. Apparently it’s too soon to joke about the actor’s terrible verbal attacks?
Shortly after going after Gibson, William Shatner dropped down on a big screen to warn MacFarlane to step up his game, lest he be marked down in history as the worst Academy Awards host in history.
